Japanese kitchenware brand Kinto is one of my absolute favourite. For the past 35 years they have created simple, beautifully designed kitchenware with a focus on innovative functions and really set the pace for the future of intuitive kitchen and tableware.

Until now their focus has been on dual purpose cookware and innovative tea-ware which fuse contemporary designs and Japanese eating culture [check out their beautiful collections  to my delight they have recently  launched an artisan side-project, the exquisite Atelier Tete. With four initial lines of sublimely glazed tableware, Dune, Strata, Terra and Grotto and their simple signature aesthetic I cannot wait to get my hands on these.

You can purchase Kinto and Atelier Tete products in the Kinto online shop or Kinto products in the UK here and here.

I love the sleek design on the dishware. Very clean and modern.

I adore what the Japanese do with kitchenware. I live in Helsinki which is full of great design but I think with this range Kinto outdo Finnish designers like Arabia. We have a small store nearby that imports homeware from Japan so i will investigate.
